American Kennel Club
- In June 2007, Entlebuchers became eligible to be enrolled in the American Kennel Club (AKC) Foundation Stock Service (FSS) program allowing the Entlebucher Mountain Dogs participation opportunities in AKC’s Companion Sporting Events. NEMDA petitioned for the ability to participate in our breed’s historic function of herding. Companion events include Obedience, Agility, Rally Obedience, and Tracking.
- In May 2008, the AKC named NEMDA as the AKC Parent Club to represent the Entlebucher Mountain Dog.
